Where the hell was Alan Gelfand at the Sundance Film festival? He needed to be interviewed with the other key members of the Bones Brigade. That my friends was a huge miss. What's up with that?— Jeff Stebbins
Ok, so I'm a 33 year old who has been absent from the skate world for about 20 years. I was talking with an old friend and he had sent me some pics of us skating...I have been reborn ! As a proud husband and father of six kids now , I've picked up rite where I left off ! After several viewings of animal chin , I purchased the new cab mechanical dragon fitted with all the goodies ( rib, tail & jaw bone ) , some nice g bones , and have been attempting a lot of things I used to do ...(I'm alittle sketchy)!! I'm also attempting to collect every Powell peralta sticker ever produced ! I'm going to build a custom wood frame out of old decks , get some custom glass cut , and it will be the centerpiece of our home. I'm about one third complete...I think....I've also purchased a classic poster of the winged ripper w/ all the products on the back wich is hanging framed in our home now. Along w/ other old Powell peralta items. I am soo happy to be skating again ! It's like I'm living again. I'm soo STOKED on the stickers , I cannot wait until its complete ! I would like to have a complete list . If anyone could help w/ this ? Thank you , Powell peralta for all the old memories and all the ones to be made ...if only I would had held on to all those old decks !! -born again, CJ— cJ “buck” Love
Took my wife to see the Bones Brigade movie at Hot Docs in Toronto. She loved it, and it brought back a flood of great memories for me.
Shortly after I spent an afternoon assembling my Mike Mcgill reissue with blue RatBones. I was smiling the whole time. Thanks.— Peter “J” Hampton
Sup shreders, just got me a sweet Caballero Chinese Dragon Re-issue. It is dope, the graphic if grarly to the bone and the feel of the ride is like it's a part of me. Just wanted to share my opinion from here in New Zealand, and hope to say how much I respect and credit Powell-Peralta. Up's to all you rad shredders out there. Stay gnarly. \m/— Austin Carter, fullstop.
Weren't Chad Bartie and VCJ supposed to be working on a new graphic for Chad? He needs one, and i want to own it!— Cheek
Viva la powell Peralta!
PP, I love your brand today just as much as I did as a kid. The most vivid graphics coupled with the best riders. All aces. I am really diggin the early Bones graphic tees you offer. So much so I have a suggestion of an old product I'd love to see come back and I would think would do quite well. You offered sweat pants (and maybe hoodies too) with the Bones skeleton doing handplants up the right and left hand seams. I'm certain navy with white puffy ink as well as red with white puffy ink were offered. I bought the red in about 1987. I bought the XL's so I could wear for a long time (I was 10 at the time). Hands down the most compliments I ever received about sweatpants in my life. Please bring back!! Below is a link to a picture online I found of the sweat pants in question. Or if you have any Deadstock of these laying around?!?!?!! I'm very interested.— Daniel “Pierre Moonswear” Sears, The Czar Agency
..And can we get Bones SPF in more Colors (like the Street Techs, man they have all the sick graphics and colors!). Regardless, when I'm at the park everyone is skating Bones Wheels, so VIVA LA POWELL PERALTA!— Cheek
I am just an old sk8tr, 48 yrs old, pls if possible made Mini cubic in SPF and Powell Peralta Rat Bones 60 mm too, i love that shape, but with new formula it will be great!!!!— Danilo “Danilo” Goncalves
Hello there,— Tommi
Could it be possible to make an reissue of the very famous Adam McNatt "Claudia Schiffer" -deck? That would be cool. Thanks! Best regards,
I think it's time to make Aldrin Garcia and Stevie Reeves Pros, and give them their own models. Time for my beloved powell to start mixing things up a bit. Less Old School Ripper,Skull & Sword,etc. and more New School VCJ art, like the JESSE MARTINEZ TRIBUTE DECK; Sick! It'd be nice to see kids get back into powell, not just for Bones wheels. Love the Ripper, but less old graphs, and more new ones! Viva la Powell-Peralta— James “Cheek” Thurston
hi guys. saw and loved bones brigade at sundance. awesome job. i had a brief chat with stacy after a screening and gave him my card. i would love to follow up... we talked about a new movie project. any assistance would be much appreciated.— roger kass, ringthejing entertainment ltd.
Hey, I'm a skating enthusiast from Sydney and have loved it from a young age, just wanted to say thank you for following what you love!I fell in love with the Dogtown articles, the doco and the film and can't wait to see the new autobiographical film, peace out and God bless— Jemma “cubby” schouten
I am not sure if this is of any interest to you, but I wanted to let you know that I currently have one of your Beamer boards up for auction on Ebay. The interest and communications that I have been receiving have been great. It was bought in the early '80s at a garage sale and has been up in my garage ever since.... I just wanted to let you know about the auction. I am sure you have plenty of them and would not have an interest in bidding, but I thought you may pass the info on if you know of someone who is interested in the board. Thanks so much... I have learned so much about your history in the past week. It's been really fun....— Coopdub
All hail King George! As an 80's skate kid who once bought for himself a brand new future primitive in silver (circa early '85) with Christmas money from the grandparents, I humbly bow before you with a suggestion for this year's Holiday deck, the original rat bones design and shape with said rats wearing Santa hats. Simple yet classic and elegant. Kind sirs if you will indulge this soon to be 40 year old who still finds the time to tear it up and eat some asphault on occasion, I will pledge my allegiance to the almighty ripper whether he be winged or not as will my two teenagers who live to skate.— Daryk
I've been shreddin for over 25 years and riding Powell just about as long. All your products are and remain superior all the way down to your bones bushings. Thanks for stayin legit through all the good times and the bad that that the sport and the culture have had to endure.— Ryan

Powell shredder 4 life
Ditched church on Sunday and decided to grab my 16 year old skater son and take him to Santa Barbara to see the Powell Store. Spent more than I should have but I had to purchase the McGill deck I rode as a kid, got him an original Cab, and ofcourse the T's and patches!!Had a great time, the crew was very helpful they even took some money off the top!!— nahum
What can I say I rode powell all my skate life (started late 80's in Mexico City), my first board was Tony Hawk "Claws" and I used until it died, then (when I could get the money together)I got a skull and sword, the greatest board ever! and every time I bought a board Powell peralta was the one! I still have a nicky guerrero mask complete with gullwing trucks, cockroach wheels and swiss bearings displayed in my wall! I'm diying to see the new documentary, would it be on theaters? or just DVD release... Also I have another question, Can you please put in your website the boards (images) of the boards the riders have had during their cicle in PP... that woudl be soo cool! thanks for the memories and the broken bones...Un saludo!— cuauhtemoc “el Niño” vazquez
What can I say that hasn't already been said, Powell & Peralta rule! I'm 40yrs old (still skating) from the UK (Essex) and grew up watching and copying the Bones Brigade.— Carl
I Have 2 Caballero "bats" decks. But I'd love a release of Hawk's deck & a Ripper in the bottle nose shape pleeeeeeeeeeease!!!
Bones Brigade 4-Life! The only truth.— Mauro Deo
Please re-issue the Hawk deck! And maybe some of Hawk's Tee's too!— Carl
